Two-year-olds were front and centre at Woodbine Mohawk Park yet again on Thursday morning (June 25), as the Campbellville, Ont. raceway hosted a 10-race qualifying session. Five of the tilts were dedicated to the youngsters, as freshman trotters were featured in half of the docket's races.

The juveniles kicked off the session, as the two-year-olds stepped out onto the 'fast' track for the first five races of the morning.

The fastest of the morning's freshman miles was trotted by the Blake MacIntosh-trained and Chris Christoforou-driven Rookie Season, who was sharp while leaving from Post 2 in Race 3.

Christoforou allowed for a rival to assume the point in front of Rookie Season prior to the :31.2 quarter pole, but he then quickly pulled the pocket for the front early in the second quarter.

Christoforou and Rookie Season made their way down to the half-mile indicator in 1:01.3 before navigating the turn and clicking off three quarters in 1:31.

After having straightened for home, Rookie Season began to open up daylight on his foes. The Glidemaster colt had opened up a four-length lead at the head of the stretch, and completed his mile with a :29.3 final quarter.

Rookie Season's win time was 2:00.3, and he was clear by four and one-quarter lengths at the wire.

Rookie Season was a $6,000 purchase at the 2019 London Selected Yearling Sale. The colt is owned by the Hutt Racing Stable, of Malvern, Pennsylvania.

The other victorious two-year-olds during the session were Grooms Halo (2:02.2), Mystic (2:00.4), Royal Tyrone (2:01.2), and Jula Magician (2:03).
